BMWi Project

Industrial Communication for Factories.

The Project

In the Project Industrial Communication for Factories we develop secure, robust and real-time capable communication solutions for the manufacturing industry. By the middle of 2020 15 project partners in the areas of industry and research work out a technology toolbox for a reliable industrial communication and computing infrastructure. The toolbox is based on an open and not domain-specific architecture and expandable by further applications and communication technologies. Key technologies from the fields of 5G, Multi-Access-Edge-Computing (MEC), Cloud Computing, Virtualization, as well as Industrial Monitoring and Analytics are used to achieve the goals. The toolbox should enable users to select the right ICT technologies for their Industry 4.0 requirements and migration approaches.
